Well as you can tell from your evidence, no it is not late. They actually have a long breeding season. The COG Atlas shows NY from start of September till late February. As for you name “Chuffs’ is not right although maybe it should be. They are named after the English Chough that they supposedly look like but they don’t (well maybe dead they do), which is a species of crow. Deserve their own name, just like Magpie.

Isn’t this a bit late for a nest?
